Yoga Flow (Vinyasa Flow)
Vinyasa yoga is a challenging and dynamic form of yoga that enhances your strength, flexibility and endurance.
Vinyasa yoga consists mainly of yoga series that can be tailored to the needs of each individual. At the rhythm of breathing, one pose flows to the other. You feel the positive energy flowing throughout your body and feel muscles that you did not even know existed.
As we work with different variations, the sessions are accessible to beginners as well as advanced.
It's not a competition, you go as far as your body can and wants to go.
Chantal continuously gives useful tips for you to be able to do your practice at your own level. We think it is very important everybody enjoys the session at their own level.

After the exercises, we end the session with relaxation followed by meditation.
Energy Flow (Pilates)
A full body workout that strengthens your muscles and strives for physical and mental well-being.
We start the session with a series of asanas (yoga postures) which is followed by exercises to specifically train the arm and back muscles, leg and abdominal muscles.
The exercises are adapted to everyone's needs and possibilities.
The session ends with stretching and relaxation.
Yin yoga is a slow form of yoga for calm postures, and the asanas are held for a long time; three to five minutes.
In this way the connective tissue is slowly stretched and hydrated and the joints remain flexible. In this way space is created in the connective tissue and joints.
Fascia training refers to the activities and movement exercises that are intended to improve
the function of the muscular connective tissue.
We start this session with a dynamic warm-up and then work on the different muscle groups by means of weights.
Then we use the foam roller for fascia training.
Fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue that mainly consists of collagen that is found under the skin. It attaches, stabilizes, encloses and separates muscles and other internal organs. This leaf of tissue has a direct connection with the autonomic nervous system and can be influenced by the state of mind. As such, a fascia injury can be sustained due to increased stress levels. To prevent this from happening, it is important to relax and train your fascia.
Restorative yoga includes postures supported by props (bolsters, blankets, belts, ...)
allowing you to fully relax and rest. When the body is supported, it allows itself to recover.
Restorative yoga balances body and mind.
It helps both for physical complaints (muscle tension, palpitations, stomach ache, headache, etc.) and chronic stress, fatigue, burnout, sleeping problems... .
Expecting a baby is one of life’s most exciting periods.
Prenatal yoga encourages and supports you to make this process a positive one. You become aware of the deep strength in within yourself and helps you to prepare for the birth. In addition, you will also learn more about yourself and your body, so that you will discover and gain confidence in its natural function.
Yin Yoga/ Restorative Yoga
In contrast to more active forms of yoga in which we train the muscles, the focus of Yin Yoga / Restorative Yoga is on relaxing the muscles, stimulating the deeper tissue and ‘restoring’ our body. Because we hold the poses for three to five minutes, we stimulate this so-called connective tissue and accumulated waste materials are removed.
*Pregnancy: In addition to a benefit of relaxation, this also provides other benefits during pregnancy.
Yin yoga prevents fluid retention and reduces stretch marks. In addition, it teaches us to relax and confidently go along with the "pain wave" instead of resisting it.
In this way we make the contractions more bearable later on.
During pregnancy, but also after pregnancy, your body deserves extra attention. Postnatal yoga will help you to relieve physical, mental and emotional stress and thus find a new balance in your life as a mum.
During postnatal yoga, we emphasize on strengthening exercises.
We mainly focus on strengthening the pelvic floor, the lower back and the abdominal muscles.
Attention is also paid to a correct posture.
Yoga Kids is for every individual child, energetic or rather passive.
It’s a combination of yoga and play-time resulting in peace and joy.
Yoga and breathing exercises are combined with music, movement and relaxation.
Children become more aware of themselves, their bodies, emotions and environment. It’s important that they have confidence in themselves and find a nice balance.
Both non-competitive playing and moments of rest are important for the development of a child.
Teenagers experience major changes and are exposed to more pressure. Wanting to be individuals but also the desire to participate with others. Yoga allows you to be yourself and you can do it at your own pace.
“Be yourself, everyone else is already taken”
In our day to day modern way of life teenagers experience a lot of frustration which, owing to a busy daily schedule, they are not always able to cope with. Moreover, the few moments of relaxation are mostly taken up with social media such as TV, gaming ...resulting in more frustration.
During this class we emphasize on a correct yoga posture and attention is paid to breathing exercises.
